Damn this Ranchería Cellars got me stepping out from my usual! I'm tough on Merlots, but this one from Silverlake Wine's Blue Monday tasting last night was so good I had to purchase. Hard to find a palate so savory yet so bright. Deep dark fruits + cedar + light herby notes. Definitely going to be a summer BBQ go-to.
Approximately $17 (Sorry I was already drunk by the time I bought this and was one hundred percent not paying attention but swear it's under $20)
